History
The Blandy family is unique in being the only family of all the original founders of the Madeira wine trade to still own and manage their own original wine company. Throughout its long history on the island, the family has played a leading role in the development of Madeira wine. Members of the family continues to live on Madeira, maintaining a tradition that goes back to 1811: two centuries of fine wine production.
Regional Information
Madeira is situated about 1100kms off the coast of Portugal. The island relief is steep with a mountain range running the length of the island. The vineyards are planted between 200- 800 m in altitude on some of the world'ss steepest slopes. The terrain makes it impossible to mechanise the vineyards, so they are tended to by hand.

Vinification Details
Fermentation is off the skins with natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Fortification with grape brandy arrests fermentation at the desired sweetness level. The wine is then aged in the traditional 'Canteiro' system: stored in the lodge in oak barrels, initially in the loft where the gentle warming of the wine and the impact of the wood gives that wonderful caramel taste to Madeira wines.
